What is Host A Fundraiser?

Host A Fundraiser is any fundraising activity by a non-affiliated group, organization, or individual who wishes to raise money through a planned activity that is designed, managed, and financially resourced by the external participants. 

Who can conduct a fundraiser on behalf of CPL?

Any non-affiliated individual or group can host an independent fundraising event to support Canine Partners for Life. For example, these can be volunteers, schools, families, churches, community service groups, and/or businesses.

CPL is funded entirely by donations and your contribution will be used towards CPL’s general operating expenses.
